Powerful and authentic

Catching Sight of Thelma & Louise dives off the edge into the truth of women’s experience in the world.

It revisits the journey of Thelma & Louise through the lens of viewers who saw that iconic film in 1991 and shared intimate, personal, stories at that time. The same women and men were tracked down 25 years later. Are their responses different now? What has changed in the way women are treated?

MaryAnne Johanson: Oh, I love this movie so much! So much more than I was expecting just hearing what it was about. I love how all the “talking heads” here are just women talking about their own lives. I mean, many of them are authority figures — lawyers, professors, etc — but they speak from personal knowledge and experience, not with academic or professional distance. I love the introspection going on here, from the women (and a few men) reexamining their quarter-century-ago reactions to Thelma & Louise and agreeing with their past selves, or even finding that they are angrier still today.
